, and control of this new gop treasure trove of data. >> this is where the campaign laws play a very important part. an outside group like american cross roads can't coordinate with a candidate so it doesn't make sense for a data project where you can give data out. it doesn't make sense. the rnc has it right. it needs to be with the rnc. they're talking about sourcing with it other group like the guy from heritage but i think it has to be run from the party. i think that has more to do with campaign laws than maybe that person who was quoted thinks. >> one of the most interesting things i thought to come out of this report, an official endorsement of immigration reform. at least it says in part, we are not a policy committee but among the steps republicans take in the hispanic community and beyond, we must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. if we do not, our party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. is this another one where they will be butting heads with some of their own rank and file? >> not if the rank and file read the totality of that d
movement. a year later, a couple in minnesota was denied a marriage license because state law limited marriage to persons of the opposite sex. their case made to the u.s. supreme court back in 1972. it was dismissed without so much as a written opinion. the court ruled that same sex couples have no constitutional rights married and that the legal challenge itself failed to raise a substantial federal question at all. but the struggle continued. it would be another 14 years before the supreme court would issue a major ruling on civil rights for gay americans in bour versus hard wig. in the summer of 1982, michael baurs was arrested and charged by atlanta police by committing a private act with another adult man in his own bedroom. his case made it to the high court in 1986 where georgia's law criminalizing adult gay male couples for engaging in private consensual sexual acts was upheld. it was not until 203 that that decision was overruled when the court recognized the constitutional right to privacy for lesbian and gay individuals. the struggle still continues. ten years after bowers,

. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
. but the crash didn't stop the driver from getting out of the car and firing away at law enforcement officers. he was shot and killed in the firefight. >> he wasn't planning on being taken alive. i mean, that's obvious that he was trying to hurt somebody and he was trying to hurt the police. >> reporter: the chase started when a sheriff's deputy tried to pull the cadillac over on a remote stretch of texas highway. deputy james boyd was shot twice in the chest. but he was wearing a bulletproof vest, and is expected to survive. that triggered a long, high-speed chase. >> he came by me, i was say going about 100 miles an hour. had his left arm out the window and he was just shooting. he shot four times when he passed by my car parked in the median of the highway. >> reporter: the denver post quoting federal and state officials reports the suspect is 28-year-old evan spencer ebel, a parolee from the denver area. police say he is the focus of the investigation into the murder of tom clements, the director of colorado's prison system. in a press release thursday night el paso county investigators in co
next month. i want to sign that bill into law as soon as possible. >> what if anything can get done while congress is away? politico's marty kay, can the president make the most of these two weeks? can he do things while congress is away? >> he can probably be very effective while congress is away of they're scattered around the country and the world. he can use this time to talk about immigration, a little about gun control if he wants to. what we heard at the end of last week before recess, was that the gang of eight senators, half republican, half democratic, are pretty close on some sort of an immigration breakthrough. how that plays on the full senate remains to be seen but they are, some of them are ready to start debating this. it is not clear what happens at the house but the senate is ready to start talking immigration. >> that gang of eight starts to seem broken by party lines a little bit. every time we talk about immigration, we have to look at the details. some people are pro pathway. maybe after 13 years. some are pro pathway after the bored he is secure. some are pro

would be different. i think at the end of the day if we had like a law enforcement person or former law enforcement person, or someone like that as the national face of it, it would make it easier in some of the areas or some of the states you're talking about. but i don't think bloomberg -- >> gabby giffords is participating and give a different experience. they examine at it a different way and have their own group that doesn't have the funding that bloomberg has but they have a personal touch. pretty prominent law enforcement people have come forward. i get the point about the big city divide because one of the things we hear a lot from members who live in rural states and states with duplicate roots in the hunting and sportsman community and they don't see the world in the same way a big city mayor might and they have to really deal with the issue there are many gun owners in their states who say, hey, i'm a responsible person and i wouldn't do those things and don't restrict rights they believe are their own. it gets very, very personal. when you look at a mark pryor of arkansas he

again to repeal the president's health care law dubbed by supporters and detractors as obama care. the latest gop senator to take a shot says he is not giving up. three years after president obama signed health care reform into law, republican opponents are still treating it like a dise disease that needs to be cured. >> obama care is hurting young people, seniors, hispanics, african-americans. >> reporter: texas gop senator ted cruz is the latest lawmaker to propose eliminating obama care. like all of the other repeal attempts, it failed. >> i intend to keep trying to repeal obama care and to fight for pro growth policies every single day. >> reporter: cruz tells cnn the law will put the economy in critical condition. >> the economy is not growing and implementing obama care now raises a very real possibility we will push this nation into a recession. i'm trying to make the case -- >> reporter: you are saying the president's health care law will cause recession. it could very well. we've had more than 35 separate votes in the congress about that and we've always upheld the afford
this morning's "new york times" he is in favor of changing his tough new gun law to allow ten magazines instead of seven because seven magazines are not widely available. gun owners will still only be allowed to load seven bullets at a time. that law is set to take effect april 16th. >>> you know, the heat is on. miami heat has now won 24 straight games. lebron james and company staged an incredible comeback last night, erasing a 27-point third quarter deficit to beat lebron's old team, cleveland cavaliers, 98-95. james had a triple-double, 28 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists. the heat now within nine games of the nba record for consecutive wins set by the 1971-72 los angeles lakers who won 33 in a row. what are the chances, berman, that it happens? >> you can't keep falling behind by 27 points and expect to win nine games more in a row. >> they do that on purpose is my theory. but your theory is that -- >> they've gotten so used to winning any way they want, they sort of -- >> no big deal? >> -- they play casually the first three quarters and then they turn it on. i suspect it may catch up with
, which is critical to law enforcement people. they'll tell you police on the streets or state police, our law enforcement at the federal level, illegal trafficking is a scourge. and, of course, background checks are absolutely critical because right now the law prohibits sales to convicted criminals, drug addicts, seriously mentally ill and domestic abusers but can't enforce that provision if private sales are exempted. so close that loophole. and then, of course, school safety will be in the bill as well. and the amendment on the floor will be on assault weapons. clearly the core bill will have those three first provisions and then there will be an amendment to add others. >> all right. well, senator richard blumenthal, my hat is off to you. you're a good man for staying awake and coming on the air. i tell you, i thought i don't think he's going to make it and you proved me wrong. i'm very glad for that and for your company. thank you so much. >> thank you, alex. >> in today's office politics, chris hayes gives us a preview of his yet to be name prime time show that remeres next month. i
? >> cocaine for one. >> t.j., law enforcement officials are calling ebel former 211 gang member. i read past statements by the head of the gang task force saying once a gang member joins its group, you don't really get out in any way other than getting killed. do you buy that? is that kind of hype? >> oh, no, i don't buy that he's a former member. i mean, lot of times this is the stuff that's for life. i got out, when you get out, you've got to prove yourself, you've got to be working with law enforcement, talk to them in some way, shape or form or trying to get other kids out. there's no evidence proving this guy's done any of that. >> why do you think they would be calling him a former gang member, then? >> because a lot of times when a guy leaves prison, a lot of institutions basically start to refer to them as former. if they don't get in any trouble in six months, even up to a year, they basically take him off the list. they take him off the radar. a lot of times these guys come back later on. you can stay quiet for six months to a year if you're on probation or parole. >> t.j., i appre
law in chicago. karen, welcome. this case is a real life nightmare. really. we always say a parent's worst nightmare, it's a cliche. this really is. the woman we heard speaking, sherry west, says two boys approached her as she pushed her 13-month-old son in a stroller. one boy pulled a pistol, demanded money. he shot her and then her son. the little boy is dead. mom is recovering. karen, no weapon found. no eyewitnesses. will this make it hard to charge and convict the suspects? >> of course it will. all the studies have shown that eyewitness identification is very, very unreliable. however, jurors believe eyewitnesses. how could you mistake that person? how could you not have recognized the person who had a gun in your face. we know that about 70% of all de dna convictions that are overturned are are overturned with two or more eyewitnesses. that's not going to stop the prosecutors from charging or stop a jury from convicting. i think it's a problem. >> we were talking about the new york rabbi killed and on an eyewitness convicted the wrong man. they let him out of jail this week.

these laws, do you think that could potentially help politicians in both parties? >> i think you could see more governors, more state legislatures feel like they might have free reign for gay marriage in their states. craig, i will say you're already seeing such a rush on this in states with democratic control. and the change in attitudes has been striking. in our own "wall street journal" poll, 30% of the country supported gay marriage in 2004. that is now a majority. 51%. so a full 20 or more percentage points increase in just nine years. that's amazing in social attitudes and in american politics. >> it kind of reminds me, when roe v. wade happened, a lot of politicians could say this is settled law. so you don't have to spend a great deal of time engaged in debates with a potential political opponent over it. if the court, if it keeps these laws intact, how could that complicate the path for politicians running for office? >> it could. it could complicate what democrats have been able to do in a lot of the states across the country. and craig, there is the possibility there could be a
, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is in fact incompatible with our constitution. he said, back then it was less of a condemnation of legal marriage and a bit of legal maneuvering. i asked jeffrey toobin to explain that. >> all we can say for sure is bill clinton thinks it was a mistake to sign doma. he wrote an op ed a couple of weeks ago saying whatever justification he may have had in 1996 wasn't good enough. and he, like virtually the entire democratic party, repudiates it and wants to see it overturned. >> this isn't a thumbs-up or thumbs-down decision. this is the supreme court. what are we looking at here? >> this is a bit of a rubik's coupe, the defense of marriage act and the case of proposition 8, the ban that prohibits same-sex marriage in california. the federal law says the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it's legal. so people -- gay people who are married in new york and new england and all of the states where it's legal, they can't file joint tax returns or get joint survivor's social securi

, the law gives you a certain age upon when you can't consent. when you're 13 years old, you don't have the legal capacity to say, okay. even if you do say it's okay, the law says you don't know enough, and therefore, it's not okay. >> ryan, just like in steub steubenville, social media is playing a part in this, some say revictimizing the alleged victim here. here's one of the tweets, even if it was all his fault, what was a 13-year-old girl doing hanging around with 18-year-old guys? tough on the victim. >> yeah, it does. you know, it gives them a sense of what really happened. they are going to investigate and look into everything and social media gives them certain leads. when you see comments like that, you say they don't understand what happened here. as joey said, that 13 year old cannot consent. they are not at the age where they can consent. it's not about hanging out with somebody, it's about the fact these young boys, if, in fact, they are guilty, should not have done this. >> let's talk about the culture of athletes, especially football players. what does it say about the cu

shooting that everybody thought was going to lead to some kind of big change in gun law in this country seems to be losing a lot of steam right now, suzanne. and it does not look like there's going to be any kind of ground breaking legislation at this point. >> and we know, tom, that there's a battle of course that's taking place. you have new york mayor michael bloomberg who's using a lot of money essentially to promote gun control. and the nra is pushing back at this. where does that stand in terms of the showdown between the mayor and this lobbying group? >> as i was saying a minute ago, i think what you're really seeing right now is, i won't say panic, but there's certainly an urgency on the part of people like bloomberg saying something must be done now. because even though the public opinion polls favor some kind of control, that's been eroding a little bit. and we know whenever you have one of these big events and there is a surge in support, the more you get removed from it, the more time passes, the less that support is there. and the simple truth is even though the president u

the budget in the near future. ultimately this doesn't have to become law, these are blueprints, but ultimately if there's any chance at dealing with the debt and deficit, these two, very different philosophies and visions. >> early april, the president comes up with his budget recommendation. a lot of people are hoping all of this will eventually result in the grand bargain, a real deal looking down the road, everyone on board basically. a deal that would avoid, for example, having to worry about raising the debt ceiling end of july, early august. is that at all doable? >> it is possible. i wouldn't go as far as saying doable now. but what i will say, the difference in approach now versus say two years ago when they tried this and it failed and it was, you know, almost the end of the world as the u.s. bumped up against the debt ceiling, the difference is they are going through what we call in washington regular order. everything is done in the open. i think that has lead to a different atmosphere on capitol hill where people know what's going on, they're voting on measures, and
. it needs to be modernized. number two we have to enforce our laws and improve the way they're enforced. number three we have to figure out a way to deal with the people here illegally in a way that is compassionate but also responsible. that means we're not going to deport 12 million people like rand paul said today. we're also not going to give blanket amnesty or special pathway to citizenship because it would be unfair to those who did it the right way. finding that right balance is what we're working on and i hope we'll have something soon so we can begin to discuss it with our colleagues. >> your fellow florida republican jeb bush a few weeks ago when he unveiled his book had i don't want to call it a stumble but a question about whether he supported a path to citizenship. he didn't seem to in the book although he had previously said that he did support a path to citizenship. this obviously is a big sticking point with conservatives especially. jeb bush told "the washington post" during that book tour that while he was working on the book you were not for a path to citizenship. can

bloomberg is now taking aim at tobacco, again. he wants a first of its kind city law to force stores to hide cigarettes and tobacco products, under counters, behind curtains, in drawers, but not in plain sight. he explained his push on cnn's "the lead" with jake tapper. >> trying to deglamourtize, don't remind them, don't make it look like a normal product. cigarettes are not a normal product. >> reporter: the main goal is to get teen smoking rates to drop. the city says they've remained flat since 2007. tobacco shops like this one could be exempt because kids under 18 aren't allowed in. new york has led an aggressive fight against smoking and became one of the first cities to ban it in bars and restaurants. it now touts the drop in smoking rates, but it's not convincing retailers. the new york state association of convenience stores says the notion of forcing licensed, tax collecting, law-abiding retailers to hide their tobacco inventory is patently absurd. at the skyline deli, where a pack of cigarettes can cost almost $14 because of high taxes, muhammad akandi worries about the bottom lin

: the promise of inheriting the world was not made to abraham and his descendants on account of any law. but on account of the righteousness which consists in faith. that is why what fulfills the promise depends on faith, so that it may be a free gift and be available to all of abraham's descendants. not only those who belong to the law. but also those who belong to the faith of abraham, who is the father of all of us. as scripture says, i have made you the ancestor of many nations. abraham is our father in the eyes of god. in whom he put his faith and who brings the dead to life and calls into being what does not exist. though it seemed abraham's hope could not be fulfilled, he hoped and he believed. and through doing so, he did become the father of many nations, exactly as he had been promised. your descendants will be as many as the stars. this is the faith that was considered as justifying him. the word of the lord. thanks be to god. ♪ >> we just completed the second reading there. i wanted to pause because it was in spanish. and this is the first pope from latin america. and the
